Bike to Work Day

I got my first bicycle when I was 7 or 8 years old. It was a purple Schwinn, with a banana seat. I didn’t have a sissy bar because I thought it would just get in the way. When I was 10 or 11 I got my first ten-speed bike, the Free Spirit from Sears. It’s easy to remember this one because, although it was a Christmas present, I had to pay for half of it myself. I spent the whole year saving money, storing it in a little brown envelope in my top dresser drawer. It was so exciting to hand the cash to my parents and to finally have a bike with gears!...CONTINUE READING

World-Cocktail-Day-2024!

Usually when I’m puzzling, my beverage of choice is usually a cup of tea or coffee. Not today! It is World Cocktail Day and am deciding between my traditional Gin and Tonic or if I want to try something a bit more fun. I’ve done plenty of puzzles with cocktails in the image but to be honest, this my first time celebrating this as a holiday, and only because I’ve now learned about it for this blog. Before we get into the puzzles, here’s a little history lesson...CONTINUE READING

Coke-Day-2024

When I discovered that May 8th is National Have a Coke Day, it was the perfect topic for my blog this month! Coca-Cola is such an iconic brand that brings back so many great memories of my childhood. As I’ve run across them the last couple of years, I’ve been adding Coca-Cola themed puzzles to my collection, so a day dedicated to all things Coke was a perfect excuse to pick up a few more to put together and share with you!...CONTINUE READING

Funny-Business

For those of you who, like me, love illustrated puzzles, it’s time to celebrate because May 5th is National Cartoonists Day! On this day in 1895 readers of the New York World opened their paper to discover a colorful new feature in their paper - the first comic strip, Hogan’s Alley (which became The Yellow Kid) created by Richard Outcault. When I was young, I’d arm-wrestle my sister for first go at the Sunday funnies, would plonk down in front of the TV set for hours watching cartoons, and now that I’m grown, my shelves are groaning with cartoon puzzles. I guess I’m still a big kid at heart!...CONTINUE READING

Funny-Business

Today is the day Star Wars fans wait for all year long…and it's finally here! May the 4th be with you. The day where we can nerd out and wave our Rebellion or Empire flags. Are you on the light side or dark side? Are you into the original Star Wars or the newer ones? Are you a fan of the Disney+  Mandalorian or Boba Fett series? Do you still call him Baby Yoda? Or are you a rule follower and call him by his name - Grogu? When it comes to Star Wars, there are no rules. Just passion and extreme fandom!...CONTINUE READING

Inexplicably-Mushrooms

I’m not quite sure why, but mushroom and bumblebee imagery gets me every time! I admit I have plenty of home decor of both, and of course I gravitate toward puzzles of these themes as well. I really can’t explain it (I don’t even like to eat mushrooms!), but perhaps it’s best to embrace it and just share my recent puzzling mushroom adventure!...CONTINUE READING

Superhero-Day

It’s National Superhero Day and I cannot begin to explain to you what a big deal that is in my household! As a boy mom, superheroes are a big thing around here. Lucky for my boys, I grew up LOVING superheroes like He-Man, Spider-Man, Superman, Transformers… but my truest love was Batman. My mind was blown when I watched the first Batman movie in the 80’s with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. On the spot I became a die-hard Batman fan, and it lives strong in me today. I have to say though, we have to collectively forget that George Clooney was Batman, ok? Ok! Let’s carry on then...CONTINUE READING

Geometric-Ways

Hello there! I’ve been acquiring quite a few puzzles to prepare for the USA JPA Nationals, so I’ve been spending extra time on the Warehouse website. I’m noticing several puzzles that take an organic subject matter and present it in a geometric way. Just follow me down this hexagonal rabbit hole for a moment, since this appeals to my general desire to create order out of chaos, and from the perspective of a puzzler, it’s more than a bit meta. These puzzles take a subject matter that is natural, wild, and free, and constrain it to a rigid, human-made aesthetic. Or for those of you who grew up in the 80s: some puzzles put Baby in a corner...CONTINUE READING

Heritage Day

The United States has been celebrating National Picnic Day on April 23rd since 1930. Did you know that picnicking and puzzling have something in common? Both can be beneficial to mental health and reduce stress. So I thought I’d spread out my checkered tablecloth under my puzzle board and combine the two to see what puzzling picnic images would do for my well-being...CONTINUE READING
